CULTURE/SHIFT 2018 will take place November 1-3 in Albuquerque, New Mexico! 


CULTURE/SHIFT is a national convening created to generate and amplify creative strategies for change, equity, and belonging, bringing art to the heart of social justice and community.  

This participatory, multi-day convening brings together people from across country for skill-building, deep learning, relationship-building, and creative action for equity, justice, and healing. CULTURE/SHIFT 2018 will include 2.5 days of participatory workshops, performances, talks, interactive art-making and more. Programming will touch on timely and resonant regional and national themes: immigration, indigenous cultural rights, climate justice, public memory, ethics of community-based arts, community development/displacement, and more.

We’re excited to be working with the City of Albuquerque’s Cultural Service Department and many local and regional partners who work at the intersection of art, culture, community development, and social justice! Stay tuned for more details about speakers, accommodations, special events, and registration coming soon. (The 2016 convening filled almost immediately, so be sure to watch your inbox to learn when registration opens later this summer.)
